How HVAC System Maintenance Can Save You Money!

Florida Home

Heating and cooling a home is a big job. From the moment your HVAC system is installed, it works tirelessly to regulate temperature and humidity levels in your home. As such, it needs regular care and maintenance to keep working efficiently, or it will begin to slowly break down and cost you additional time and money as you attempt to repair it.

Avoid costly repairs

Yes, HVAC system repairs can be costly, but one easy way to avoid them is to perform regular system maintenance. You’ll incur costs with maintenance as well, but they will be significantly lower than repairs, and your HVAC system will last longer and perform more efficiently over time. Here are some ways that regular HVAC system maintenance will save you money in the long run:

  1. It will help avoid summer breakdowns. Cooling a home can really take a toll on an HVAC system, particularly in hot and humid climates. Avoiding regular maintenance can result in total system breakdown, and it may take hours or even days to get a repair technician out to service your unit. Avoid uncomfortable breakdowns by having a technician check and regularly service your unit, ensuring all parts are in good working condition.

  2. It will reduce the need for winter service. While southern climates don’t see a lot of frigid weather, there are times when we need to fire up that furnace for a few days. Nothing is worse than a home that can’t be adequately regulated for comfort. Ensuring that your unit is ready for these blasts of cool air will reduce the need for costly repairs and provide you warmth when you need it.

  3. It will work more efficiently. Performing regular maintenance services like cleaning and filter exchange will ensure that your unit is working efficiently. An efficient unit can reduce energy costs by as much as fifteen percent, and who doesn’t like a little extra money in the pocket? Spend a little on upkeep now and save exponentially over the life of your unit.

  4. It will help reduce medical bills. Surprisingly, a unit that is not regularly cleaned and maintained can cause you and your family a host of health problems. Respiratory issues, allergies, and asthma have all been linked to dirty filtration systems and HVAC systems that are not cleaned regularly. Reduce the chances of developing any of these conditions by having your system checked and cleaned on a regular basis.

  5. It will save money on the warranty. Quite often, any warranty that comes with your HVAC unit can be avoided if you fail to perform regular system maintenance. Should your unit break down during this period, it is only covered under warranty if you’ve been keeping up with a planned maintenance schedule. Save yourself valuable time and money by implementing maintenance procedures so you can take advantage of a money-saving warranty offered by your unit manufacturer.

  6. It will extend the service life of your unit. It is far more cost-effective to keep your unit running efficiently rather than thinking about replacement. Call your qualified service technician twice yearly to clean and service your unit for maximum life extension.
